A Shot A Day – 2016 (02/14/2016)

I suppose the normal person doesn’t like wet, foggy, cold walks in the morning, but I (definitely not being considered normal) love the muted tonal ranges that present themselves and the stark compositions that become apparent.

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (045A of 365)-(14-02)

Nikon D810, Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8

ISO800 – 1/2500 @ f/2.8 – 70mm

As I considered the possibilities for this image, I noticed the band of white grasses located just forward of the lone tree in the scene. To me, it seemed as if that band of vegetation made a much better dividing line in the composition, than the tree itself did.

I elected for a very short depth of field, shooting at a wide open f/2.8 and focused a little forward of the tree, letting the far focus limit, of the depth of field, include the tree.
